about

Thanks to everyone involved, those who were there from the beginning of the songs (or somewhat cohesive ideas), those who stuck around to see it all through and those who eventually became apart of it. You guys are all amazing and it means a lot to us that we got here. Thanks to the Uribe Taborda family for believing in this from the start. Special thanks to the late David Andrew Wesley III, we'll all miss you.

Track Name: Playgrounds
Playgrounds
And kids running around.
The kids mirror their parents
And play by rules of their playpen.
Exceptions to the rules are wrong.
They've been this way for a long time.
Time.
Time.

My, oh my I swear we avoid the new.
Why should I care if nobody else wants to?

Make them play somewhere else.
Watch their little heads melt.
And nothing's the same
And those who stayed will never know.
Will never grow.

My, I swear we avoid the new.
Why should I care if nobody else wants to?
My, oh my I swear we avoid the new.
Why should I care if nobody else wants to?
Oh they never knew,
They never grew in those playgrounds.

(Solo)

My, I swear we avoid the new.
Why should I care if nobody else wants to?
Oh they never knew,
They never grew in those playgrounds.
Track Name: Nomad Autophobia
Too cool to be lame,
Too boring and sane.
I left the norm that I took in vain.
I couldn't fit over there,
I was a rounded out square.
Now I'm the one no one can bare.

Ooooh drifter melancholia.
Ooooh nomad autophobia.

Too many jokers, no room for more.
Here I'm mediocre, quite a snore.
They want a drinker, a life of a party.
I don't want much liquor, I'm so sorry.
Controlled and unstable.
Being different is now a label.

Ooooh drifter melancholia.
Ooooh nomad autophobia.
Ooooh a-drifter melancholia.
Ooooh nomad autophobia.

I don't smoke enough for the tokers.
I don't mope enough for the mopers.
They just don't care for my name
And I don't know why
They changed the rules to my game
And now I'm the bad guy.
Track Name: Still Life
Trying to find flowers butting through the road.
Little cracks of green is where they probably grow.
I wanna make them into my new home.
How can I find them?
I don't know.
I don't know.

Time paralyzed. Stuck in still life.

Living, learning, loving and thinking
I wanna balance my own life.
But I'm scared I'm fucking up.
I can't tell if I'm dying.
I can't think that way.
Gotta do right for everybody.

Time paralyzed. Stuck in still life.

Little fishes in a giant aquarium
Don't know boundaries if they see 'em.
Do fishes feel boredom?
People never care until they sink towards the bottom.
Track Name: Somewhere
There are turbines in the dark.
There are turbines in the dark.
There are turbines in the dark.
There are turbines in the dark.

They are turning
Round and round and round.
They are turning
Round and round.

I seem to have forgotten.
I seem to forget.

They turn my lights on.
They turn my lights on.
They turn my lights on.

Just like you somewhere.
Just like you somewhere.
Just like you somewhere.
Just like you somewhere
Out there.
Track Name: Anything
Standing on jupiter taking shots panoramic.
Praising like a minister or a hopeless romantic.

She can be anything that she wants to be.
Things are gonna hurt but you've got to work for it.

Tell me you love her and respect her choices.
Acting or joining a choir, lending her voices.

She can be anything that she wants to be.
Go away, nay sayer, thats not working for me.
Thats not working for me.
Track Name: As I Always Do (Ironic Process Theory)
I never had the chance
To say "thank you"
For helping me throw away
The things I was stuck to.

They say you forget old things
When you find something new.
I honestly thought it would happen
Loving you.

As I always do.

Feels good to know
I already have everything to be satisfied
And if you don't agree
Give me a chance to change your mind.

I wish I could see the sun
Go down with you.
I'm lying to myself saying
I don't think about us two

As I always do.

(Instrumental Break)

I never really took the time
To think this one through.
Do I honestly need you around?
Do I even love you?
I hate that I do.

Sometimes life is nice
Forgetting about you.
Even though I've gotten tired of smokin'
In solitude.

As I always do.
Track Name: Song for the Dancer
Beautiful dancer moving through space in symbols.
Birthing something I can recognize and it has me kindled.
Atoms in my eyes, theres a million more than stars.
Thats where they come from.
How goddamn bizarre.

Xeno baby, new love and loss.
Xeno baby, looking life through gloss.

Believe that the universe is experiencing itself.
It sways along like the dancer promising me love and health.
Different dancers, same movement just kind of like ourselves.
Then why do we separate humans?
Each one a man of the world.

Xeno baby, new love and loss.
Xeno baby, looking life through gloss.
Xeno baby, new love and loss.
Xeno baby, looking life through gloss.

Xeno (baby!)...
Like a bird!
Track Name: Spinning Right (Into Life)
You and I will never know why
Why we're spinning right into life?
We're spinning right into life.
Oh.

A burning light, we open our eyes.
We're rotating right into sight.
A red cloud in my mind, naive and high.
We're rotating into a nebula.

And then a fire turned into an ocean.
Making itself year by year.
Maybe the streets will be cleaner.
Who knows, we maybe never get out of here.

You and I will never know why
Why we're spinning right into life?
We're spinning right into life.
Oh.

With time I'll fly even though time is dry.
Time is the reason we all die.
Feel the warmth of my sigh, naive and high.
I'm feeling more alive.

And then a fire turned into an ocean
Making itself year by year.
The people scared us so we got weaker.
Who knows, we may never get out of here.

(Solo)

And then a fire turned into an ocean
Making itself year by year.
One day the grass will be greener.
... We may never get out of here.
